When is saw that Danny Jefferson respond to you by distancing himself from you, I was not surprised. Here is what transpired with Danny Jefferson and me just before he “Unfriended” me on Facebook a few years back. Do not ask a Democrat to back up his rhetoric or else! I was so very disappointed in this leader representing the Christian community.
“Yet key parts of the intersectional narrative are not born out by data. It is now a standard trope, implanted in freshmen summer reading lists through the works of Ta-Nehesi Coates and others, that whites pose a severe, if not mortal, threat to blacks. That may have once been true, but it is no longer so today. Just this month, the Bureau of Justice Statistics released its 2018 survey of criminal victimization. According to the study, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent. That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, blacks committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15 percent. From 2015 to 2018, the total number of white victims and the incidence of white victimization have grown as well.
Blacks are also overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes—by 50 percent—according to the most recent Justice Department data from 2017; whites are underrepresented by 24 percent. This is particularly true for anti-gay and anti-Semitic hate crimes.”
“There is a true law, a right reason, conformable to nature, universal, unchangeable, eternal, whose commands urge us to duty, and whose prohibitions restrain us from evil,” he wrote. “Whether it enjoins or forbids, the good respect its injunctions, and the wicked treat them with indifference. This law cannot be contradicted by any other law and is not liable either to derogation or abrogation.”
“Neither the senate nor the people can give us any dispensation for not obeying this universal law of justice,” he said.
“It is not one thing at Rome and another at Athens; one thing today and another tomorrow; but in all times and nations this universal law must forever reign, eternal and imperishable,” he wrote.
“It is the sovereign master and emperor of all beings,” said Cicero. “God himself is its author, its promulgator, its enforcer. He who obeys it not, flies from himself, and does violence to the very nature of man.”
And, speaking of this, in light of the earlier comments on the data on white and black crime, consider the treacherous Vallejo Times Herald, having already been exposed as a Marxist Organ, but lying every single day, to try and protect it’s globalist masters. Today’s newspaper sees on the front page the conviction of a white female police officer in Dallas Texas, who mistakenly walked into another apartment, and shot and killed a black man. While I agree with the verdict, as mistakenly killing anyone is a severe offense against natural law, let us examine the media’s treatment of this. Would it have been on the front page if it was a black police officer, killing a white woman? No, it would not have been. How do I know this, because it just happened in Minnesota, with a Somalian police officer, hired for ‘muh diversity’ who shot and killed an innocent Justine Damond, which resulted in the conviction of the officer, and the payout of $20 million for the family. We didn’t hear anything at all about this from the Vallejo Times Herald. When black on white violence is 90% of all inter racial violence, why is it that the 10% of white on black violence constantly is featured in the media, schools, and tech companies, training young minorities to be afraid of America and white people? Because we have miserable liars who are paid a lot of money to lie to the American people and to cause chaos, discord, and dissension in America. These are your loud mouthed, rabble rousing Democrat activists. The ones who interrupt me at Vallejo City Hall meetings constantly. Can’t have the people being alerted about the real dangers, instead they must silence those who tell the truth.
Further, the lying, deceitful, and thoroughly discredited Vallejo Times Herald, and Jack Bungart, are still engaged in massively lying, as we see by the columns by serial liars from the Washington Compost, Kathleen Parker, Eugene Robinson, and Dana Millbanks.
For those who are interested in learning about how to identify a white racist, which may be of interest to Danny Jefferson and company, there is a great column by Walter Williams, who, unlike Danny Jefferson, has lived through real racism.
“During my student days at a UCLA economics department faculty/graduate student coffee hour in the 1960s, I was chatting with professor Armen Alchian, probably the greatest microeconomic theory economist of the 20th century. I was trying to impress Alchian with my knowledge of statistical type I and type II errors. I explained that unlike my wife, who assumed that everyone was her friend until they prove differently, my assumption was everyone was an enemy until they proved otherwise. The result: My wife’s vision maximized the number of her friends but maximized her chances of betrayal. My vision minimized my chances of betrayal at a cost of minimizing the number of my friends.
Alchian, donning a mischievous smile, asked, “Williams, have you considered a third alternative, namely, that people don’t give a damn about you one way or another?” Initially, I felt a bit insulted, and our conversation didn’t go much further, but that was typical of Alchian – saying something profound, perhaps controversial, without much comment and letting you think it out.
Years later, I gave Alchian’s third alternative considerable thought and concluded that he was right. The most reliable assumption, in terms of the conduct of one’s life, is to assume that people don’t care about you one way or another. It’s an error to generalize that people are friends or enemies, or that people are out to either help you or hurt you. To put it more crudely, as Alchian did, people don’t give a damn about you one way or another.
Are white people obsessed with and engaged in a conspiracy against black people? Here’s an experiment. Walk up to the average white person and ask, “How many minutes today have you been thinking about black people?” If the person isn’t a Klansman or a gushing do-gooder liberal, his answer would probably be zero minutes. If you asked him whether he’s a part of a conspiracy to undermine the achievement and well-being of black people, he’d probably look at you as if you were crazy. By the same token, if a person asked me: “Williams, how many minutes today have you been thinking about white people?” My answer would probably be, “Not even a nanosecond.” Because people don’t care about you one way or another doesn’t mean they wish you good will, ill will or no will. They just don’t give a damn.
What are the implications of the people-don’t-care vision of how the world works? A major implication is that one’s destiny, for the most part, is in one’s hands. How you make it in this world depends more on what you do as opposed to whether people like or dislike you. Black politicians, civil rights leaders and white liberals have peddled victimhood to black people, teaching them that racism is pervasive and no amount of individual effort can overcome racist barriers. Peddling victimhood is not new. Booker T. Washington said: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” In an 1865 speech to the Anti-Slavery Society in Boston, abolitionist Frederick Douglass said that people ask: “‘What shall we do with the Negro?’ I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us!” Or as Patrick Moynihan urged a century later in a 1970 memo to President Richard Nixon, “The time may have come when the issue of race could benefit from a period of ‘benign neglect.'”
And, for Jack Bungart, John Glidden, and the rest of the die hard Democrat stalwarts, who still can’t understand what is going on, after being corrected hundreds of times, here is an honest and humble man, Barry Farber, who after being deceived for 3 years, finally realizes what is going on. May you profit from his example. “Owah Tahgu Siam”. LOL.
“How can a stunt at a North Carolina Boy Scout camp in the 1940s explain what’s going on in Washington right now? To me, it’s perfectly clear. Finally!
Shortly after lunch on the last day of camp, rumors began circulating that this was going to be a big night for the entire camp. Apparently, every camper who qualified was to be ritually inducted into “The Royal Order of Siam.” We’d never heard of The Royal Order of Siam, but it sounded very impressive and would add luster to our uniforms and merit badge sashes. And how might we qualify for this impressive honor? We had no idea, but the word all over camp was that everything would be explained around the ceremonial campfire after dinner.
And sure enough, after dinner, over a hundred of us Boy Scouts gaped in awe as the camp director and his entire high command appeared bare-chested and adorned with multi-colored body paint. The mood was set. We had no reason at this point to doubt the authenticity of The Royal Order of Siam, and we were honored to attempt to qualify so that we might join such a distinguished fraternity.
At this point, a drum roll and bugle salute signaled that the solemn process was about to get underway. “Welcome to this induction into The Royal Order of Siam,” said a top-ranking member of the high command. “You will all line up in formation. I will lead the following incantation, and those of you who think you understand its hidden message should come to me and whisper what it is that you think you understand. If you have correctly understood the message of The Royal Order of Siam, you will join its prestigious ranks. Repeat the incantation after me.”
He then raised both arms over his head and loudly proclaimed “OH WAH!” which we then repeated according to his instructions. We all shouted “OH WAH!” with great gusto.
We were then instructed to extend our hands straight forward from our shoulders and repeat “TAHGU!” The final instruction was, “with arms down by your sides,” to repeat “SIAM!” “Now,” said the leader, “Let’s do the whole incantation together!”
And a hundred of us Boy Scouts thrust our arms over our heads and shouted “OH WAH!” Then with our hands straight out in front of us we shouted “TAHGU!”, and finally, with arms at our sides, “SIAM!”
“All together now, and repeat that five times!” came the instruction, and the energetic incantation echoed through the pine forest from one end of Camp Greystone to the other. “OH WAH, TAHGU, SIAM!” “OH WAH, TAHGU, SIAM!” And then we repeated the incantation three times more.
Some of the brighter Scouts ran immediately to the leader’s side, right by the campfire, and whispered what they thought they had deciphered. The rest of us, confused but undaunted, were then instructed to keep repeating the incantation, along with the prescribed arm movements. Now more and more students ran to test their understanding. All were correct. The rest of us had to keep on repeating the incantation until we either broke the code or gave up.
There followed now a steady stream of “OH WAH, TAHGU, SIAM!” and of Scouts who may have been a little slow but thought they had finally caught on.
After a few more “OH WAH, TAHGU, SIAMs,” those of us who were still completely bewildered were beginning to feel embarrassed, as the other campers who had broken the code and been accepted were now laughing at us, ridiculing our lack of success. Finally, I and two other hopeless, hapless and helpless boys were the only ones still muttering the incantation, while the merriment of our more successful buddies grew more and more raucous.
At long last, and just seconds before the total evaporation of my self-esteem, it came to me.
Have you readers decrypted the incantation of The Royal Order of Siam already? Fear not, I’m sure you were quicker than I was to discern the hidden message, which was, of course, “Oh what a goose I am!”
(A slightly younger friend, when told this story, recalled that in his Scout troop, in NYC, an additional incantation was performed, which went “OH WAH, TAHNAH, SIAM!” Repeat it a few times and I’m sure you’ll understand.)
What, then, does this teach us about what’s going on in Washington these days? The above is a cute little test on how you fare at interpreting unusual messages. Let me now start at the end. There is a miserable, rotten, seemingly never-ending scheme to get rid of Donald Trump as president, and the perpetrators don’t even care if the nation is harmed in the process. Nothing else matters to them.
I am a conservative of at least moderate intelligence, and yet I did not perceive this coup attempt at the outset, not the first time they cried “Impeachment!” nor even for the duration of the dreadfully painful campaign, nor even after the shameful “Russian collusion” probe.
I was embarrassed by Trump’s frequent cries of “Witch hunt!” After the Manafort episode, the Michael Cohen disaster and the Stormy Daniels fiasco, I still didn’t get it. But now I feel like that pitiful Boy Scout who needed a stronger vision than he brought to the campfire back in the early 1940s. It took “Operation Ukraine” to push me over into awareness that Trump scores about a 95 in my little book, and his impeachment adversaries come in at a flat zero! Even those who are among the last to catch on must now finally see what’s really happening.
As one who grew up among overachievers, it’s easy for me to understand why so many people want to get rid of this outrageously successful leader, President Donald Trump.
One good apple ruins the whole rotten bunch!”
